Last Minute Holiday Outfit Ideas
Red is always a good pop of color for the holiday season. If you don’t know what to wear for your holiday party, picking red is always a good idea. In today’s post, we took this photoshoot during our Japan trip. Our family decided to visit Harajuku and I heard about this famous street since I was 13 years old. I was quite excited to finally to go see. But the shoot was not at Harajuku though, it’s right after we took the metro at Omotesando subway station. We walked along the high-end street where Gucci, Prada, Chanel and other name brands you could think of are located. It was early in morning so there weren’t a lot of people walking around.
I was 27 weeks pregnant at that time and it was hilarious to dress up, walked along the road and then had Braxton Hicks contractions at the same time.
My husband and I were planning to get a channel card case for me, as a reminder that we visited Japan and as my Anniversary present. But as I did a some research about the price, here was not such a good place to buy high-end items. The prices are a lot higher than in the States.
Overall I had so much fun taking picture along the way walking to my dream shopping street, Harajuku. I just had to work before I could start shopping! 🙂
What I am wearing in this post is this red ballon sleeve knit sweater from Forever 21, my red leopard cami dress is from Nasty Gal and my red Vince Camuto suede mules are from Sole Society. Here are the similar halfmoon sunglasses and faux fur top handle bag.
These are a few of my photos in Harajuku Street!
Day One of #GOODVIBESGIFTING
Get to know me: To think about one of grateful thing that happen to me in my life, I would have to bring up this story to share with you. I grew up in a family of a single mother. My mother worked 7 days a week as a teacher and tutor until the day she retired. She really never had a day off, maybe during Thai New Year and that was about 3 days a year, that was the time she didn’t have to work. She barely made it through each month to support here kids which included my brother, my sister and myself.
Sometimes we barely had enough money to just buy some eggs and share for dinner. Strange thing was that I never acted or felt like I didn’t have enough. Because in my heart I always knew that I have my mother, my brother and my sister. My family is all I need.
All of the hardship our family went through since I was little, had made me feel so strong, and so grateful to have the life I live today. I never give up on my dream, I never stoped dreaming, neither stoped learning.
This might sound funny, but I am so happy that my life wasn’t as smooth as others. One thing that helped me keep going when it came to some hard time, is to compare my bad situations, to what my mother had to go through to help support our family, which were (will be) incomparable.
In conclusion, I am so very grateful that I was born in a family that cherish love and support, not money or objects. I grew up with love, understanding and my my siblings and I never envy others’ lives. I’m loving my life and who I am now as much as my life and who I was then.
Question for you today: Share with us, what is one grateful thing about yourself?
